Here we have a very beautiful and very colorful hand stitched patchwork comforter that was made in the 1920’s in New Jersey!
This fine piece of early 20th century Americana was made by Hungarian woman and her daughter during the 1920‘s. The woman came to America in 1911 and her daughter was born in 1912. It is exceptionally well balanced and a very well thought out design!
The comforter is made from many different pieces of printed fabrics. Colors of red, blue, purple, green, lavender, white, yellow , pink, burgundy, gray, turquoise, purple, etc. The stitching is so precise that at first it looks machine made! It is a recent attic find that was packed away by the family for over 50 years! It measures about 66” x 80” and is nearly perfect! There are only a few loose stitches see (close-up photo) and one of the girl’s bows, a boy named Ed, penned his name on it when they took in on a picnic around the 1930's (about 1” square), see close-up.
We will provide the names of the woman, her daughter and their last known physical address in New Jersey to the purchaser so you will have the full history behind this fine hand sewn piece of art! (Please note that the white border around the piece is not part of the comforter. It is the white material we laid it on to protect it from the lawn when we photographed it.) Family heirloom, hesitant sale, price is firm.
